Monster Hunter World: Where Are Save Game Files and Configuration Files Located?

Monster Hunter World has been recently launched for PC and is available for Steam. And everybody is playing the game for all the right reasons.

But if you’re wondering where are the Monster Hunter World save game files, or where are the MHW configuration files, we’re here to help!

In today’s article, we’re going to share exactly that with you: how to easily find your save files and config files on your computer.

Before we start, have in mind that the official word on altering, editing or deleting the save game files in Monster Hunter World is that you shouldn’t do it. In other words – if you decide to edit the save files, you do it at your own risk. So it’s best to create a backup of these files in case something goes wrong.

Now that you know this, here is where to find your save game data for Monster Hunter World for PC:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\[STEAM ID]\582010\remote

The above path is the default one. If you have Steam installed in a custom location, simply go to your Steam install folder, then double click the directories: \userdata\[STEAM ID]\582010\remote

Where to find the configuration files for MHW?
If you’re planning to make some changes, it is recommended to create a backup of the files first, in case you somehow manage to break them. And here is where all the config data is stored:

Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World

The files that you should look for are Config.ini / graphics_option.ini / graphics_option_preset.ini.

Happy editing – but try to keep things safe! You don’t want to break the game!
